    I just purchased the Drawing Human Anatomy Course two days ago and THIS IS AWESOME! The feeling of instruction on this series is totally comfortable. It is almost like sitting down for a one on one drawing lesson. Very well done. I am only two sections in, taking my time to get every bit of information ,but I already see my knowledge of the human body for artists expanding by the down to earth approach. WELL DONE SIR!

    I cannot wait to move on to the Complete Animation Course.

    Best teacher ever, 100% recommended.

    It would be great if you could add subtitles in english. Although your voice is really clear, English is not my native language, and I’m not familiar with some anatomy concepts.

    Greetings from south america.

    If i could add another 10 stars i would, this course was awesome! I studied various genres at art school many years ago including life/anatomy classes, but when i finished i decided on graphic design as a career. I hadnt used a lot of my drawing skills in this area for so long, & after falling ill which finished my career in graphix i had to look for something else. I started painting again & did a bit of that along with sketching….enjoyable but not my aha moment until i found you can paint digitally ☺️ Bringing my traditional & digital skills together was magic, ive spent a couple of years honing these skills on PS & Painter….part of which was brushing up on my anatomy both human & animal. I want to thank you Aaron, your tutorials are exceptional! Easy to follow, but not boring for more advanced artists & im sure most coukd learn a thing or two from you. Im now working as a digital artist & building my client base, i felt confident in wildlife painting as ive always drawn animals-even so i picked up a lot from your big cat course, the real biggie for more was this human anatomy course….i dreaded painting the human form, but i knew i needed to do so if im going to work proffesionally in digital. I did the course quickly, going through each subject with a few sketches, but im now going through it again taking lots of time….even doing the quick run through has improved my life drawing/portraits ten fold. I highly recommend Aarons courses to any artist, no matter what level your at theres much to learn from this talented man. Will so be joining your annual subscription!! ❤️??

    Those videos help me a lot to improve my drawing skills and I have learned so many things about the human body and I still learn things every time I replay the video
    I highly recommend this course

    (to Aaron I would like to have a course on the neck – how it fit into the head, the shoulders..etc – I really struggle with this part and I think it will be a great add on this human anatomy course)

    Btw Thank you so much sharing your knowledge on this platform (and sorry for eventual english mistakes I’m a french follower ^^)

    I wanted more from this, but I suppose it’s an approach to making anatomy a less daunting subject for people just getting into it. If you want more in depth and more terminology I suggest you get a book on anatomy instead. Since I’ve subscribed I got this with everything else and personally glad I didn’t spend the money on the individual course since I thought most of the information was stuff I already knew. I also found it was hard following along drawing since he often sculpted the forms not really giving a clear construction before he started to lead into what muscles went where. Which sometimes made me feel like I didn’t know from what angle or perspective they were presented in. This might be a more personal opinion but I want to be able to jot down some poses of what the teacher is demonstrating to understand it better.

    On a more positive note I enjoyed the demos and I think I need more knowledge on how to simplify the anatomy, so I really enjoyed the lesson where Aaron ties down his gesture drawings.

    This is a great resource. Everything is straight and to the point. I think it’s a good idea to have a bunch of photos with models prepared on your computer (especially for the part where he goes into the torso and all the muscles). Just in order to observe the things Aaron is talking about on a real person and then draw, draw and draw.

    All in all, I enjoyed this course and found it very helpful! I’d highly recommend it to fellow beginner artists.

    I bought Drawing Human Anatomy a few weeks ago, and I’ve been slowly following along step by step. Very clear instructions, good tips to help you remember how to do it when you try again from scratch.

    I can draw well by observation, but find it difficult to create ‘something from nothing’, so I needed to learn anatomy, for sure, if I wanted to switch from doing fine art to character design/environment art.

    I am only up to how to draw mouth’s at the moment, and I can’t believe how much I have learnt already… AMAZING!
    Thanks for your tutorials, once I’m finished with this one, I’m moving onto another How to of your character design course :)

    I love Aaron Blaise and I think he’s a great teacher in general, but in this course he is simply showing how well he draws without really giving a thorough explanation of the anatomy. He often says “this muscle-y bit goes here, this goes there” and it feels very superficial. It would have also been nice to see some photos of what he is talking about to better illustrate the point. Perhaps it was to be expected from such an introductory course but I think if someone is interested in really getting into anatomy there are so many better resources out there. Proko has free videos on youtube that explore anatomy more clearly (in my opinion) and his premium course is expensive but just the absolute best you can possibly get on this subject. “Force: Anatomy” is also a good resource as is Michael Hampton’s book, and there are many many more if you are willing to look into it. Personally, I was very disappointed but the price is reasonable and it seems from these reviews that it was helpful to others. To those who have little resources I would suggest investing in something else.

      Hello thanks for your feedback! The other courses your mention, from Proko and “Force: Anatomy” are all great and he recommends them to people all the time. The purpose of Aarons’ course though is to teach how to draw and not to necessarily all the specifics of anatomy. It’s intended to be drawing based first and not a scientific approach. He does address that early on in the course. Aaron’s approach to drawing is based on comparative anatomy and good draftsmanship. In his opinion knowing all the names of the muscles is not needed to be able to draw them.

    I would rate this course 5 stars even if it was just for being able to watch Aaron draw the human body for hours on end and being able to draw along – even if that means stopping and rewinding once in a while – video is way more patient then any teacher could ever be.

    And no, it’s not about learning every bone and every muscle by name. To me it is a course on how to think about the human body, how to visualize and draw its shapes and forms, lines and curves from every angle, never losing the dynamics, using the main building blocks of our body. From memory, if you dare :) And even if you’re not an animator, the bonus materials of movies ánd drawings of the human walk can only still add to the above, I think.

    Great course if you want to get familiar with the human form. Even if you’re already up to date on bones and muscles, this may still help to draw a forest instead of just lots of trees. It does for me.
